Simply Silhouetted!

Hi everyone, this card is for Andrea's Stampin' Moments Simply Saturday challenge - Simply Silhouetted. I really love silhouette stamps, you don't really have to do a lot to them, just stamp it on a nice background, add a little bling and there you go!

My stamp is by Hero Arts, the greeting is from Stamp-It. I just stamped the flowers onto some patterned paper.......I have no idea who the maker is as I only have a few scraps left, wish I had some more really! I added a colour lift with some red gingham ribbon. Not sure if this is a true CAS card as it has a few layers, but it was pretty easy to make. Hope you like it!

Just on a personal note, it is an anniversary of sorts today for me. Not one that you'd want though, it's one year today since I was diagnosed with cancer. It hasn't been a great year, but, the good thing is that I'm still here to talk about it.........and I'm not planning to go anytime soon either!

Happy Father's Day!

It's a bit late as Father's Day was yesterday, but here's the card I made for my Dad! I would've posted this yesterday, but because of some wild weather here our power went out for most of the day......thank goodness it came back on before it got dark. I managed to get some much needed work done in my garden instead, at least it wasn't raining most of the day! Maybe we'll get some Spring weather soon......pleeease!

I've entered this card in the Copic Oz blog challenge #2. - I'ts All About Men! My image is by Penny Black and I've coloured it with Copic Markers, of course! The greeting is also by Penny Black, the cardstock is Stampin' Up Kraft and retired Cranberry Crisp. The Kaisercraft Patterned Paper are just some scraps from other projects that were sitting on my desk, I didn't even trim them, just added some ink to the edges. Also used some Nestabilities Circles and Labels dies and some stick-on letters for the 'Dad' word.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope you are having a great day!
